Trans Am Update – New Headers – Cammed Lopey Idle and Rev

 

We just thought you might like to hear a clip of the Trans Am idling and revving. After Jordan’s accident, he had to replace the exhaust on the Trans Am. Now, the car has Hedman long tube headers, dual 3″ Hedman X-tension pipes, Jones Full Boar mufflers ( Flowmaster Super 10 copies), and 3″ turndowns. Overall, we’re pretty happy with the sound now. Jordan also put on a different hood since the last video. He still has some modifications to make to it, but it’ll work just fine. When the snow melts, we’ll get it out on the road and do a driving video. Thanks for watching!

Trans Am Update & Open Headers Road Test

 

It was a nice day out, so we decided to take the Trans Am for a little road test. Jordan is still waiting on some parts, but he cobbled things together just so he could drive it. The acceleration run at the beginning was with a shorty header on one side and a long tube on the other. With open headers, the size difference left to right didn’t seem to effect it any. Hopefully you find this interesting, we thought it was time for an update. Thanks for watching!

Trans Am First Drive After Wreck

The weather was a little better today, so Jordan decided to take the Trans Am for the first drive since his wreck. We really expected the car to be down for a lot longer, but Jordan put in some long hours to get it finished quick. He completed most of the bodywork, installed the new exhaust, repaired the transmission, and added some new wheel centers. The car is a long way from perfect, but Jordan says it will do until spring. When warmer weather gets here, he plans to swap on a different hood, finish the bodywork, and give it a fresh coat of paint. For now, he’s just happy to be driving it again. We thank you all for your comments and support, we appreciate it. Thanks for watching!

Trans Am Wrecked by BBQ Grill

 

Jordan had an unfortunate incident in the Trans Am last night. The car is a little banged up, but I’m just happy he’s ok. As you can see in the thumbnail, the exhaust got folded up like an accordion. Somebody had dropped a barbecue grill in the middle of the road, right after a curve. There wasn’t anything he could do to avoid it and he ended up flying off the road backwards. He’s very lucky that it wasn’t worse. The Trans Am and Jordan both will live to fight another day. Thanks for watching.

Trans Am First Road Test

 

Jordan decided to take his Trans Am out for it’s first road test since the repairs. He was worried the the transmission might have been damaged when the flexplate came apart, but it seems to be good. He also repaired the oil pump pickup and the engine is showing great oil pressure. He’ll get it out for a better drive when the weather is a little nicer. The wet roads make things a little too exciting when you hammer into it. Obviously, he still needs to put the hood back on and get the rest of his exhaust hooked up. I’m sure he’ll have it all back together shortly. Thanks for watching!

Trans Am on the Backroads and a Few Burnouts

Jordan was out cruising the Trans Am around on some backroads yesterday and he had the GoPro running. It got a little squirrelly on him a couple of times and he managed to find a cop out amidst the corn fields somehow. We through some burnout clips at the end, just to keep things interesting. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

Pontiac Trans Am Burnouts – Lopey Cammed V8

The weather was great, so Jordan decided to take the Trans Am for a little spin…and a couple burnouts. He’s about to buy some new tires, so he wasn’t too worried about laying down some rubber. He also made a cardboard stencil and sprayed the Goodyear lettering on his tires, just to see what it would look like. He figured it was a good time to try it, since he’ll be done with these tires soon. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
